  1. i absolutely LOVE tangerine burst. nice choice
  2. here is a couple of truths for you, like it or not. 1) the truth is not an insult 2) reality is not an attack. as you can see by the post you quoted, i knew people would get butt hurt. too bad. i notice while the two of you whined that i was being mean, no one was able to make the claim that anything i said was untrue or not correct. well, i reject political correctness, because it's stupid. while some folks feel we should powder everyone's bottom to be sure they don't get a rash, i disagree. it takes ZERO effort to ask google how to do something. an almost 30 year old system that has basically remain unchanged and people still think it's legit to claim they can't figure it out. there are things i can't play on my guitar. you know what i tell people when they ask why not, even though i've been playing for decades? i tell them it's because i don't practice often enough. i tell them the truth instead of offering excuses. it is my opinion that the rest of the world would do very well to adopt the same tactic. also, i don;t need to cut my lawn anymore this year. seasonal growth is done for this year. now i need to vacuum up all those darn leaves
  3. you could be right. being in my mid 50's, most folks my age are technology illiterate. i don't understand why they resist it, as if it's some passing fad
  4. monday: mom! mom! today i said my abc's just perfect! the teacher was really happy and told my i could say them better than anyone in the 1st grade! well, that's because you're a drummer. tuesday: mom!mom! today i read my book report and the teacher said i did a great job! that's because you're a drummer wednesday: mom!mom! today i learned that i'm the tallest kid in the whole first grade! is that cause i'm a drummer? no johnny, it's because you're 26
  5. i know folks like to be pleasant to others and all, but the truth is, the internet is already 26 yrs old kids born at the same time as the internet have careers and kids of their own. it's not by any stretch, new technology. it baffles me that after all this time there are people who still don't know how to post a pic on a forum. a google search returned 344,000,000 results. i don't expect people to learn bb code, although it is helpful if you spend any time in forums. however, you cant get more basic than posting a pic, or googling how to do...just about anything you could imagine
  6. i have the ULTIMATE secret weapon. any time i want to do hard and heavy like corrosion, early sabbath stuff, monster magnet, etc. i use the mightiest fuzz ever made in the history of guitar pedals:
  7. it would be hard to choose from 2 possibilities... a) johnny a with no bigsby, and 57 classics, locking tuners, and a roller nut with a 60's slim taper neck in a honey or tangerine burst b) 335 with a nicely figured top in the school desk finish, same neck as above, but with ebony board and block inlays
  8. i like summer because it means riding and bass fishing. last month i bought a house, and last weekend, 2 puppies. that means that this summer will not be spent riding or fishing. it'll be spent cutting the vines off the back fence, refinishing the deck, sealing the bilco doors, and cleaning up dog pee. you can;t ge mad at them though, because they are way too cute i would love to post an image, but for whatever reason the forum wont let me. i have no patience right now to screw around trying to figure out why the ef this forum auto edits my bb code
  9. afaik, it's legal for them to protect the body shape, and other aspects that make their instruments unique. if that's what they want to do, they have the right to do it. there's enough wiggle room in there to allow other manufacturers to get pretty similar before there is an issue. gibby can go after chibby of it wants to, but it will amount to nothing, so i doubt that is who the video was aimed at. i suspect it may be boutique builders, and possibly folks like rondo, as well. if they do get more agressive with other builders who are using parts of their design, i have no beef with it, as long as they dont use intimidation tactics to scare little guys away from doing their legit thing.
  10. a very good choice, imo i will say this about strats: i have one. it's a hot rod. truth is, it's a more versatile guitar than my les paul. it sounds better, and plays great. i play the lp more because it's more comfortable. but the strat is a better all around guitar.
  11. other than the white background i LOVE the new forum for the way it works now. thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you
  12. a 335 fits everyone's requirements, because they are the coolest guitars ever made 😀
  13. dude - do you realize that guitar is defective? it was made backwards
  14. i'm moving next weekend, so i don't feel like dragging out my board to take a pic. however, what i have is: guitar>polytune>pitchfactor>ocd>firey red horse fuzz> blueprint delay>rotochoir>amp i dont use any of the pedals that much. each one has certain specific things i use it for. 75% of the time i use the amp's o/d and a little delay. i will take this opportunity to repeat something i say each time the subject of pedals comes up - there is no fuzz ever made that comes close to the firey red horse. if you like fuzz i dont care what sound you're after, the red horse will deliver. just be sure to get an older one with the 3 way switch at the top that allows you to use different transistors according to your needs. if you think your fuzz sounds better, you're wrong. it doesn't.
